Certainly a lavish book, and very pleasing to see the LotR Source Journey books are all still valid, as are the recent Warbands Armies books.
The new rules work seemlessly with the existing models and rules and stats... so all is well, and quite a relief!
And Monday when I came home from work the Starter Set was waiting for me! Wonderful!
Knowing what was going to be in the starter set - and having seen the movie trailer, I realised I had suitable terrain for just about everything already, except 'Goblin Town'... so I made a start... I had some poly sheet and some dense poly too left over from previous projects, and a pile of balsa. I quickly used the balsa I had and grabbed some more from local toystore.
NZ$20 and I have enough blasa sheet to cover most of the board... I'll see how it goes, might need a bit more...
|Goblin town wooden platforms start to take shape|
So dense poly shapes cut out and a quick once over with sand textured paint, and it was starting to take shape...
|Goblin Town planned out on a 4' x 4' sheet of 2" thick poly|
Then a quick rummage in the garden borders and a pile of bark chip mulch was sourced.
|Bark Mulch from the garden - 'Free' terrain supplies! :-)|
And on it gets glued into place to effect the rock walls.
Smaller bark bits will be added to fill the gaps, and the joins sealed with more sand textured paint.
I hope progress will continue apace!
Stay tuned Hobbit fans!
